End of Soccer Season

It’s been a wet and windy week around here, not even a short break where I can head over to Titlow or down to the beach for some quick shots. It’s hard to complain, though, when just a few miles up or down the road people are being driven out of their home by flooding.

Today was the first day I could have gotten out and taken some photos, but it was also Gavin’s last soccer game of the year, and I’d rather be a good grandfather than a good photographer any day.

It turned out to be an auspicious day, the warmest day of soccer season and the second game Gavin’s team has won this season. It’s by far the best game the team has played all year, and it was nice to end the season on a positive note. Here’s a shot of Gavin down in the other team’s goal area.

Hopefully the victory will carry over to next year. Heck, it would be nice if it would carry over to the Husky-UCLA game this evening, but that’s probably too much to hope for.

I’d like to be out taking pictures now, but the lawn desperately needs mowing, the leaves raking, and the garden cleaning out. So I’ll be out in the yard for the rest of the day, or at least until it gets dark at 5 P.M.

  1. I think for the most part kids aren’t too concerned about “soccer” per se, it’s just an excuse to run around in the sunshine with their friends. I used to watch my little niece play soccer- it was fun to see them having so much fun!

  2. hey loren, thanks for the pics of people running around in shorts and short sleeves!! a few thousand miles northeast of you, ice hockey season is almost one quarter completed. i haven’t cut the grass for a month as it’s stopped growing. the leaves are all off the trees, and the birds are almost all gone. snow on the ground this morning – crunchy ice crystal snow.
